Abandoned Places Nine Degrees Below Photography Graduation Thoughts: Advice to the Young Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Oh, never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they've faded. Don't worry about the future. Do one thing every day that scares you. Sing. Don't be reckless with other people's hearts. Floss. Don't waste your time on jealousy. Remember compliments you receive. Keep your old love letters. Stretch.
